Grateful Dead Live at Sam Boyd Silver Bowl, U.N.L.V. on 1995-05-21
Primary source: SBD: Dat > Cass > Dat > Cass2 > Dat > CDR > SHN (http://db.etree.org/shninfo_detail.php?shnid=15077).
Secondary source: SBD>DAT>DAT>CDR>WAV>SHN from partial second set recording.
NOTE: Primary source was slightly fast, suspected on listening initially and confirmed easily by comparing to a DSBD partial source. The pitch issue as well as a few other technical shortcomings are taken care of as well as the upgrade for most of the second set (see info file).

Subject: Solid show, excellent drums/space
Overall, the show is a good show, for 95 standards. Not great, but definitely worth the listen! (except for the beginning of drumz) :D
Subject: Wonderful show despite revisionist theory

Then it was over. I remember just sitting out by the car, kind of wanting to go to the next place with them, but knowing that it was over, really over. There was a longing, and a peace too. I just kept smoking and feeling the vibe of the night that was flowing out into the desert. I wish we had done better by those guys in the last years, it just got out of control. Thanks Dead, for everything. I still think about you all the time. I was glad to have had such a nice final set with all of you too.
Hey, "sound quality freaks", this is maybe not what you're looking for as you comb over the reviews for "quality" ratings. But this is a nice recording; I'd only heard a muddy one until this point.
Subject: It was the best of times it was the worst of times.......
The one I have was poor audiance quality but was glad to have it.
This was mine as well as many others LAST GD show but on top of it it was my birthday! A great weekend of fun as Friday was my brothers birthday and Saturday was my best friends and we are all Huge Heads.
The First set was nice but the second was a real gift! Especially after I got a back stage pass during the break! No I didn't get to hang with the Boys but I still have the pass and it says "Paid in Full" .
I believe the second set was smokin start to finish even with Corina which isn't one of my favs and Liberty which can Quack like a duck-lol.
The Unbroken was a sign of things to come for my love of P&F's and the Eyes sparkled and shined.
Excuse my long windedness but I wax nostalgic for the Days that Lie between.
The Other ONE-buscameby
Subject: Poor showing, too hot.
Looking back at the show, even though it was barely tollerible, I should have enjoyed it more. I was too worried about money. There are more important things in life.
2 stars out of 5

Right around this time (May), along with the rough Tampa show, Jerry was in trouble..SPring tour must have done some damage.
BUT- There were more good shows left (Shoreline, Deer Creek, Soldier, RFK)..so keep going!

Subject: Goodbye Jerry
Subject: The show I remember
That being said, a good set list that in my memory kept getting better and better, but doesn't show through on the recording.
This was my last show. After the show, the cops were making us turn right as we exited the parking lot (we needed to turn left). We drove for about two hours and suddenly we were surrounded by green hills and tall tress (neither in Vegas). We panicked, so we turned around and were back at the stadium in about five minutes. Later that night I won $1000.
I remember right in the middle of Sugar Mag thinking, "I will never be this happy in this way ever again." So far I have been right.
